MY Blue Seas

The ideal choice for your diving adventure to the Southern Red Sea.

The Blue Seas operates in the southern Red Sea and offers trips departing Hurghada and Marsa Alam. The cabin choices provide a nice option for couples with double beds onboard.

The MY Blue Seas is the sister ship of the Blue Pearl. All experience from the construction of the first own luxury boat of the Blue Planet fleet flowed into this ship. Various details could thus be improved. Also size and space could be increased again, so that this ship now represents the ultimate among cruise ships. It was built in December 2004 and has a length of 38 m and a width of 8 m.

The MY Blue Seas drives all routes, from north to south. It takes the most famous and sought-after dive sites, from the classic North and Wreck Tour, to the Marine Parks, Brothers, Daedalus, Zabargad and Rocky, as well as St. John's in the Deep South of the Egyptian Red Sea.

The ship offers seven twin cabins and one master suite in the lower deck, as well as two double cabins and two twin cabins on the upper deck. All cabins are equipped with their own air conditioning and shower / WC. Two spacious sun decks, with sun protection, offer plenty of space to relax.

.

Double & Twin Cabins

The Blue Seas boat offers 12 deluxe double/twin cabins with en suite bathrooms.

  • Double or twin beds
  • Private bathrooms

Route Options

Explore the fabulous Brothers, Daedalus and Elphinstone which offer a stunning underwater world consisting of cliffs, wreck diving and a wealth of marine life. An ideal tour for those who want to experience world famous wrecks and reefs. Brother Islands, Daedalus and Elphinstone is a must for all die-hard Red Sea divers!

Brothers, Daedalus & Elphinstone route has been designed to offer customers a 7 night itinerary around some of the most iconic dives in the southern Red Sea. There is so much to see that you are spoilt for chicie, it allows you to explore the three finest dive sites in the Red Sea, departing from either Hurghada or Marsa Ghalib and offers challenging dives, big drop offs, coral walls and plenty of large fish.

This itinerary is great all year round and for experienced divers. It is a must for all die hard Red Sea divers. Always keep one eye open though so you never the sharks, dolphins and turtles. Big Bothers: Who is the fairer brother? Many believe that the larger one is a bit more ahead of its wrecks and more attractive: the Aida II and the Numidia have found their final resting place here and are as beautiful as they were never in "lifetime". Mutated into blooming gardens, one can only guess where the wreck ends, and the reef begins. The Numidia on the more unprotected north side has crumbled it neatly by the forces of the water. Due to its cargo, it is also called a railway wreck. The bow is in shallow water, from about 15m depth one guesses the hull. Beautifully overgrown rails automatically pull you down, so be careful! The screw is beyond good and evil at a proud 80m.

Small Brothers the reef has a very high concentration of life in a very small area. Coral forests, overhangs, hard and soft corals in a variety and with amazing colors ... and of course there is a lot of fish! With regular sightings of hammerhead sharks, fox sharks, gray sharks, silk sharks and white tip reef sharks is to be expected at any time of the year.

Daedalus Reef: About 180 km south of Brother Islands, this huge reef is surrounded by steep walls and strong currents. The hard corals have grown to enormous size! Here you have a great chance on the famous hammerhead school in the north east of the reef.

Elphinstone Reef: This reef is known for shark encounters, white tip reef sharks, hammerhead sharks, gray reef sharks, fox sharks and of course, for what Elphinstone is famous for: the Longimanus - the oceanic white tip reef shark .
Elphinstone Reef or Sha'ab Abu Hamra, located 20 km from Marsa Alam, is a reef no larger than 300 meters in length. Its spectacular cliffs drop well over 100 meters on either side of the reef. Strong currents make this a perfect drift dive along cliffs covered with many species of fish and soft corals. Here you can see barracudas, angelfish and hordes of anthias, groupers, moray eels and swarms of sweetlips. The reef is covered with soft corals to the north. At the southern end of Elphinstone is an archway, with 65 feet of depth, this is far beyond the scuba diving limit, but best suited for Tek divers. Whitetip sharks also occasionally visit this area. Other types of sharks are regular visitors here - white tip and gray reef sharks as well as hammerhead sharks and silk sharks can be spotted.
The east side is a large wall, the west is less steep and a bit sandy. Overall, this area has a lot of soft corals, sponges, gorgonians and giant whip corals. Brothers, Daedalus and Elphinstone Reef are a great combination for divers who love boulders and big fish.

The exact route and reefs that are visited are weather dependent and depend on the diving experience of our guests.
Start and end of the dive safari is in Port Ghalib.

Deep, deep in the south are the St. John`s reefs. This group of reefs is rarely dived because of the distance and offers the diver an almost untouched underwater world. Breath-taking cliffs, overgrown with large fan corals, black corals and soft corals in all possible colours promise fantastic dives.

Also, the fish wealth is large in St. John's and here you can meet the otherwise rare buffalo-headed parrotfish. A look into the blue water can be highly worthwhile: big fish such as sharks, barracudas, or swarms of mackerel and tuna fish are not uncommon here. With luck you can also find mantas and dolphins.

Dive sites that can be dived on this tour are the St. John's Reef: All of its dive sites are very close to each other, so it's easy to travel from one dive site to another on a liveaboard dive. St. John's offers a lot of variety in its dives: steep walls, tunnels, caves and stunning hard-coral formations. One of these dives (St. John`s Caves or Umm Kharalim) is truly unique and is a photographer's sky with rays of light shimmering through small tunnels.

St. John's Reef North: Cave Reef is about an hour north of St. John's Reefs. With a lot of fun you will find a way through tunnels and battlements. One of the most beautiful dive sites of the Red Sea.

Fury Shoal: An immense chain of reefs with a variety of outstanding dive sites. Abu Galawa in the north to Sataya in the south. Have fun discovering caves, tunnels, coral gardens, plateaus and cliffs! At Abu Galawa inside the Fury Shoal, for example, there is a wreck called the "Tugboat".

Elphinstone Reef: This reef is known for shark encounters, white tip reef sharks, hammerhead sharks, gray reef sharks, fox sharks and of course, for what Elphinstone is famous for the Longimanus - the oceanic white tip reef shark .
Elphinstone Reef or Sha'ab Abu Hamra, located 20 km from Marsa Alam, is a reef no larger than 300 meters in length. Its spectacular cliffs drop well over 100 meters on either side of the reef.

On the north side lies a nameless wreck. The 70 m long ship lies at 24 m depth. The entire rear impresses with its intact superstructure stairs, railing, davits, to portholes, hatches and the bridge make it a picture book wreck.

Rocky Island: Rocky Island is a legendary dive site that makes every diver's heart beat faster. The fringing reef surrounding the entire island promotes the growth of all possible life forms.

Sha'ab Sataya is located just south of Fury Shoals, this huge natural lagoon is surrounded by a massive reef (Shaab). The fame of Sataya is its steep walls along with pelagic sightings, hard and soft corals. But the real stars are the huge herds of dolphins that are often found there, so Sataya is also called the "Dolphin House" of Hamata. Depending on the prevailing weather conditions, night dives can be done here.
